The 2008 Annual reunion was held on the 4th to 6th of April, at
The Holiday Inn, Cardiff.
Magnum Winner David Cowen
Mugnum Winner Sonia Anderson
72 Members and guests were present for the Club's return to the capital of Wales, 16 years on. The city had changed somewhat in that time, thus rewarding a visit, and although the hotel that served as base of the weekend was the same, that had even undergone a name change! Whilst much of England shivered under snow, the weekend was generally blessed with good weather, with those on the fascinating Saturday afternoon tour of the Millennium Stadium more in danger of sunburn than anything else! To celebrate the Club's 30th birthday Friday night saw the Club descend upon Cardiff Castle for a rather eccentric Welsh banquet, with the Club Secretary being called upon to impersonate a bear during the retelling of a "folk tale", whilst Club pens were given away to those attending the Saturday dinner.

A hard-fought Magnum competition saw a Welsh winner as David Cowan upset Geoff Thomas by a single point in a thrilling final, and Sonia Anderson won her firth Mugnum title. Certainly a far from dull weekend was had.
